"This book is about celebrating people for who they are, allowing them to be seen as they want to be seen." --Wall Street Journal
"Ethan James Green approaches his nonconforming group of friends as the type of participant-observer that makes for the most emotionally affecting photography in Young New York." --Vanity Fair "The photographs, when gathered together, provide a portrait of a fledgling youth culture united in its defiance of the boundaries of race, sexuality and gender - a focus which has seen his work deemed reminiscent, in style and subject, of Diane Arbus." --Another Man
